Alisa Weilerstein’s latest album captures one of Antonin Dvorák’s best-loved works, his Cello Concerto, and two handfuls of gorgeous songs and arrangements. The whole album was recorded in the same concert hall that Dvorák conducted his own music. Jiří Bělohlávek conducts the Czech Philharmonic for the concerto, and Anna Polonsky plays piano for the rest of the album. Ms. Weilerstein is also a spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
